I was too busy having fun at Revelry to get photos of my outfit, whoops… I was really proud of how my hair accessories looked though, so here’s a photo of the ensemble! 

Handmade Cream Headbow (back, and fraying slightly as it was a rush job), Metamorphose ‘Princess Wardrobe’ Bow Pin used as barette, Sass & Belle Rose Clip (found by chance as I wandered around London!) and Butterfly Clip

I also ended up making two rings to go along with it and pick themes out from the print. The main focus is dresses, but there’s also pink roses and the butterfly tied in with the one on my head.

Wondertropolis ‘Skyscraper’ JSK, Everything Else Offbrand

The light outside my new house is less than brilliant for outfit photos. There’s a yard enclosed on three sides, so it’s always really dark. Not sure about the beret - I think it would work better if it were a bluer navy. It’s a bit slate coloured to mix with this outfit.

Outfit from 16-09-2014, featuring a vintage dress
Don’t worry, I haven’t cut all my hair off - I’ve used a very sophisticated technique called “bundle it up and shove it into the back and hope it holds with the aid of many many bobby pins”. I like it! All the fun of short hair without sacrificing my curls.

Outfit for Revelry - Take II
Metamorphose ‘Princess Wardrobe Lace-Up JSK Luckypack’ JSK, Socks, and Bow Clip (worn as barette)
Vintage Blouse
Hush Puppies Shoes
Handmade and Offbrand Hair Accessories
This is my other option for Revelry. I really wish I had the cream x pink Princess Wardrobe socks to balance out the pink of the blouse because there’s no pink from my knees down, so I think I’ll be going with the other outfit as it’s more balanced.

Handmade OP and Headbow, Offbrand Everything Else

I’m not sure how long this OP will stay an OP. I don’t think the sleeves flatter me, and I’m not happy with the standard of sewing. I definitely want to re-do the hem now I’ve discovered what a blind hem is, and I may as well redo the top whilst I’m at it - maybe in black velvet to echo the flocking of the skirt.

London Blog - Day 1

Some backstory - I’ve taken the three days running up to Revelry (Saturday 20th) as a mini-holiday in London. I’m travelling alone, and really looking forward to taking a break before my final year of uni. Warning: I went to Laduree for afternoon tea and have written a paragraph on croissants below the cut.

The day does not start well. I am the President of a student society. This sounds glamorous and exciting, but what it means is that the week before term begins I’m constantly scrabbling around in my email inbox, delegating and distributing and asking nicely for sponsorship, and it has occurred to me that I will have to take my laptop on holiday with me. I do not want to do this, but I feel ignoring the emails from a potential sponsor for five days is not the way to prove that the Society is worth sponsoring, so into the suitcase it goes. When I said I wanted to explore all aspects of a barrister’s life, this was not what I had in mind!
